Seems that Trump does not hold grudges for too long. Well, either that, or he just wanted the best team, no matter WHO is on it…a friend, or foe. If it be a foe…if they are the best, he wants them! It’s never personal, always business.
From the Daily Mail:
Donald Trump is ready to move into a new, more ‘presidential’ phase of his campaign, including a rapprochement with some of the Republican rivals whose political carcasses have littered his battlefields.
That could mean a reconciliation – and even a vice presidential nod – for ‘Little Marco’ Rubio, even as he continues to cross swords with ‘Lyin’ Ted’ Cruz.
‘Yes. I like Marco Rubio. Yeah. I could,’ Trump told USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers when she asked if there would be a place in a Trump administration for the presidentially underperforming Florida senator.
‘There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody names,’ Trump said, adding: ‘I do like Marco. I do like [John] Kasich. … I like [Scott] Walker actually in a lot of ways.’
‘I hit him very hard … but I’ve always liked him,’ the Republican front-runner said of the sometimes feckless governor of Wisconsin who worked overtime to make sure Cruz beat him there last week.
But Trump hinted that his love-fest trial balloon could ultimately be shot down.
‘There are people I like, but I don’t think they like me because I have hit them hard,’ he said.
Rubio’s U.S. Senate office did not respond to a question on Tuesday about whether or not he would accept the number-two slot on Team Trump.
But he told reporters in Washington on March 17, two days after suspending his presidential campaign, that ‘I’m not going to be anybody’s vice president.’
Powers spoke with Trump in his New York City office last Thursday for an hour, a rare opportunity for a left-of-center pundit with political roots in the Clinton/Gore campaign of 1992.
Asked if he was about to make a grand pivot away from bluster and toward a more statesmanlike public profile, he said: ‘The time is going to be soon.’
There you have it.. what do you think?
